Are you planning your daughter’s homemade Halloween Costume for this year? Looking for a fun idea for DIY Halloween costume without the hassle of sewing? Look no further! Sydney So Sweet has put together 17 of our favorite no sew Halloween costumes for 2019. We have some of the simplest, yet most creative DIY costumes for toddlers, girls, and even adults. If you are searching for easy, no sew Halloween costumes for girls, or DIY costumes for girls, teens, and adults, you have come to the right place! 

Our Top 17 Easy No Sew DIY Halloween Costumes

We've done most of the work for you with our cute Halloween Costume Sets. Read to see how easy Halloween can be this year.

1. Dalmatian Costume

Grab 100 of your closest friends and dress up as one of our Disney favorites - 101 Dalmatians. This costume was so fun and easy to make. It only takes a few simple steps. First make quick trip to Target for some black leggings, a white t-shirt, 1 piece of black felt, and some black and white face paint. You will also need a Dalmatian tutu costume set from Sydney So Sweet. Cut out some spots and tape or glue them to the shirt. (We chose tape so that we can reuse the shirt later!) Paint a few spots on her face, get dressed, and she is ready to take on Cruella Deville!

2. Minnie Mouse Costume

This might be our favorite! You only need some black or white leggings and a t-shirt, and a Minnie Mouse tutu costume set from Sydney So Sweet in either red or pink. Add a cute little black nose to give this costume that extra special touch. It's the only thing you have to do! And here is the best part... this costume comes in toddler, teen, adult, and even plus size! How about a mommy and me Minnie Mouse pair this year! (Please send us a picture of your mom and me Minnie pair in our tutus and we will give you a gift card to our store!)

3. 80's Diva Costume

A classic and recognizable look, our 80's costume sets come with everything you need to recreate the Cyndi Lauper or Madonna material girl look! Set includes a tutu, leg warmers, fishnet gloves, and beaded necklace in your choice of classic neon colors. Choose neon pink, neon orange, neon green, neon blue, or neon purple. Just add a t-shirt and a cute feather hair clip, and you are set. (This one also comes in adult and plus sizes!) Totally rad, right?

Everyone will be buzzing over this costume! This busy bee costume kit includes the tutu and bee headband. Make it your style by adding a t-shirt and leggings, and some cute black shoes or boots. Available in toddler/kid, adult, plus, and extra plus!

6. Panda Costume

This one is my daughter's favorite! Everyone loves a cuddly panda. And the costume is super simple to put together. We found a white tank top and some face paint at Target. (Or use a white t-shirt that you already have!) Paint 2 black eyes first, and then outline them with white. We used a q-tip to outline first. Then throw on some leggings, a t-shirt, and some boots, and she is ready for Sydney So Sweet's panda tutu costume kit. The kit includes the black tutu, ears headband, and a cute little tail. We used a safety pin to attach the tail to the waistband of the tutu. This one come in adult and plus sizes too!

7. Elephant Costume

This is one of our most popular costume kits, and I think you can see why! You could even add a cute little hat and clown collar for the most adorable Dumbo costume ever! This elephant costume set includes a gray tutu, huge floppy ears headband, and and elephant tail. We paired it with a tank top (it was hot today!), but I think this might look cool with a gray hoodie as well! This one comes in toddler/girl, adult, plus, and extra plus sizes too. Our model, Sydney, is 12 years old and wears a girls size 14. She is wearing the size L tutu in the picture below.

8. Anna & Elsa - Sister Costumes

Perfect for a sister, cousin, or bestie duo, or even mom and me! Our Anna and Elsa sparkle tutus make the perfect starting piece for your sister squad Halloween costumes this year. We even have the capes and masks! All you need to do is add the smile! These are available in toddler/girl, adult, and plus sizes.

9. Frog Costume

A green tutu, a bow tie, and a big eyes headband make the perfect starting pieces for your DIY frog costume this year. Our green frog costume kit includes both pieces and comes in toddler/kid, adult, plus and extra plus sizes. We paired it with a white tank top and black leggings. This is another one that might be cute with a hoodie, but in green this time, especially if you live somewhere where Halloween has cooler weather. We also added some cute green cheeks to Ava using face paint we found for $1 at Target.

10. Alligator Costume

And here is our other favorite green costume, the alligator. For Sydney's look we just paired a white tank and black leggings with a size L alligator tutu costume kit. A couple of cute green cheeks using our $1 Target face paint, and she is set. Available in toddler/girl size too! Wouldn't this be fun for your little Florida Gators fan?

11. Pig Costume

The Three Little Pigs, Piglet, Peppa... the possibilities are endless with this favorite! Our tutu pig costume kit includes pig ears, a pig tail (wind it around a pencil to curl), and a tutu in your choice of sizes including toddler/kid, adult, plus, and extra plus sizes. Our little pig model even wore this outfit to the county fair. How perfect is that?

12. Cow Costume

 And if your little pig needs a barnyard friend, how about this adorable cow costume? Just add a black tank, t-shirt, or sweatshirt, and moooooo. We can do the rest with our cow costume kit. All you have to do is pick your size. Set includes a cow print tutu in your choice of size, a cow ear headband, and a cow tail. Available in kid/toddler, adult, and plus sizes.


13. Super Hero

Always a fan favorite, dress her as her favorite super hero and she will be ready to take on the world. But make sure you do it with sparkles and glitter! Our sparkle running skirts make the perfect super hero accessory. Pair with a cape and mask set from Sydney So Sweet's cape collection, and you have a 5 minute costume. Both the skirts and the cape/mask sets come in toddler/kid, adult, and plus sizes so there is sure to be a fit for everyone in your family. (Just skip the skirt to include little boys and dads in the fun too!)


14. Disney Princess

A costume guide would not be complete without a few DIY ideas for your favorite Disney princess costumes. There are so many cheap looking princess dressing on the market. Skip right past those and try one of these deluxe princess tutu skirts instead. Sydney So Sweet's deluxe princess skirts are made from layers of tulle, satin, and sequin fabrics, and they are finished with a huge satin bow which can be worn in the front or back. Just add some solid color tops and leggings (we found these at Target, of course), and maybe some glittery makeup, and your princess will stand out from the crowd. These come in adult and plus sizes too, so it is the perfect chance for an adorable mommy and me combination.

15. Black Cat

Every little girl loves kitty cats! And this Halloween it will be easier than ever to put together your own outfit, even for a mom and me black cat duo! Our black cat costume set includes a black tutu in your choice of size (toddler/kid, adult, plus, or extra plus size), a plush cat headband, and a white tipped cat tail that can be attached with a simple safety pin. After that it's up to you! Pair with black leggings and a t-shirt (sparkly if you want). Add some eyeliner whiskers and a little black nose, and grab your trick or treat bag. This costume is purrrr-fect!

16. Lion 

Maybe she wants to go bigger than just a regular cat. How about the queen of all cats! We painted Ava's face using glitter gold blush, and black and white face paint from Target. Add a white tank or tee, and Sydney So Sweet's lion costume set, and this lion is ready to roar! This one can be done in gold or brown. And for you mama lions, we have adult plus, and extra plus sizes too!

17. Ringmaster

And finally, the costume fit to tame all of the beasts above - our Circus Ringmaster! We found a cute red tank top and some glitter face paint at Target, and matched it with our Ringmaster tutu costume set for this look. You just choose red or black and your size (toddler/kid, adult, plus, or extra plus size). Set includes the tutu and headband hat. Add a gold hula hoop from Target ($5.99) and she will be ready for the the greatest show in this amazing costume!

My 5 year old girl is going to be a racecar driver. She is going to drive her pink hot wheels car while wearing her pink racecar driver tutu dress. She came up with this idea all on her own too. 😊
